The weekend weather has been great here in the Pacific Northwest.
Saturday, we ventured out to the little town of Orting for the graduation party of Bob's oldest grandchild (Heather). It was a Mexican theme, lots of wonderful Mexican food to eat and music playing in the background. As you can see by the pictures, Bob and I did what we could to go along with the Mexican theme. We had such a good time, three of Bob's four daughters were there (we always miss Hope, who's down in Pasadena, at these functions) and four of his grandchildren were there. However, his youngest and her husband are expecting another baby June 27th, so I guess there were really five grandchildren there if you count little Marin Rose. They have a little guy who turned 3 in April. Bob's son always has to work on Saturday's so we don't see him very often. We stayed until about 9pm and helped clean up. There were people coming and going all afternoon. Heather's graduation ceremony is the evening of June 12th at the Puyallup Fairgrounds. We already have our tickets for that.
I think it's kind of neat that his oldest grandchild is graduating from high school the same month a new grandchild will make her appearance (unless of course she's a few days late.)
Today, I really didn't have much to do so went out to Bob's place with him. I don't go out there very often, I have enough to do at my place. And it's a matter of either taking Gabi or leaving her home alone, if I stay out there over night. He lives about 35 miles from me across the Narrows Bridge and then some. His house sits on 5 acres and it's very peaceful there, but it's also long distance to call my friends from there, he has no cable TV (only gets 1 channel) and since I've switched to DSL, I can no longer use his computer because he still has dial-up. I tried signing on under "GUEST" again today and AOL informed me that I was no longer paying for dial up, so I couldn't sign on. So...those are all good reasons to not go out there very often, in my mind anyway. LOL
He does seem to get more done when I'm there, he started weeding his dahlia patch, cleaned off the sun deck and I spent the day cleaning up the kitchen and doing several loads of laundry. But now I'm back to civilization and loving it !
This evening it's cooling off real fast, the wind has come up and it's getting overcast. I guess rain is blowing in off the coast. Which is fine with me because I have some stuff to do in the house and this way, if it's raining, I don't feel guilty about being outside working.
Until next time....Linda
